it has europe's mightiest renaissance wall, it hasn't seen a battle since 1430. locals, like my friend and fellow tour guide gabriele calabrese, treat their ramparts like a circular park. and with plenty of rental bikes available, visitors can enjoy a lazy pedal around its 2-1/2-mile circuit, as well. so, gabriele, this is a renaissance wall. what's the difference between a renaissance wall and a medieval wall? calabrese: the medieval wall is thin, because they had no problem with harrows or stones. but in the renaissance time, the cannons, they became very strong, and they became a problem, so that's why it was so thick. steves: lucca's wall didn't come cheap. but all that hard work and investment combined with clever diplomacy earned the city a long period of independence. and to this day, the proud lucchesi have a strong sense of identity. rather than showcasing famous monuments, lucca's appeal is in its relaxed old-world ambience. stroll around. take time to let the city unfold. romanesque churches seem to be around every corner, as do inviting piazzas busy with children at play. t

12, 1945. this was just a few weeks before world war ii in europe was over, just a couple of months before world war ii in the pacific theater was over. roosevelt made it almost to the end of the war. six days later, april 18, the reporter, ernie pyle, was killed on an island in the western pacific. killed by japanese machine-gun fire. obviously these were not equally traumatic events to the country. but it is kind of remarkable that just six days after roosevelt's death, who had been president for 12 years, the new president harry truman issued a statement at the white house, a statement of bereavement recognizing the death of ernie pyle, a newspaper reporter. president truman said "the nation is quickly saddened at the death of ernie pyle. no man in this war has so well told the story of the american fighting man as the american fighting man wanted it told. more than anyone he became the spokesman of the american military man in arms. he never obscured the men." there were lots of other eulogies for pyle. maybe the best was written by a famous poet of that era, randall jarrell.

in europe and asia. palestinians face a similar problem. i told chairman arrow fat directly i did two tours of duty. the first was when arafat was in power n 1947 the united nations, to create two countries. israel ab cemented t the pal stippians rejected it. the first war started. one by israel as has every war since then. i believe most sensible arabs today would gladly accept the 47 proposal if it was on the table. they have rejected every proposal since then. what i said to arafat and later to abbas was: there is no evidence that the options are going to get any better for you. indeed, all of the evidence is that the options are getting worse the longer you go. you want to sit down in negotiations, stay in negotiations with the active support and sustained support of the united states and many other countries that want to help and get an agreement to create a state. it will be less than what you are asking for. you will probably think it unfair, but the reality is, once you get a state, you can then build on it. i believe thing. the palestinians are edge ergetic. i think they can creat
to keep future stability in europe. having nato in europe allowed americans to also stay in europe. he believed firmly that the only thing that had truly cap the peace was the american president. he pushed hard for reunification on the terms they needed, which was keeping germany in nato. the second one was the gulf war. this strikes me as a moment where we see the end of the cold war. we see two things, first, the soviets coming along with the international community in a way they had never done before, working with britain and france and the united states on a central issue of importance to all of them, the security of the middle east. secondly, this is the one where president bush begins to lay out what the world would look like after the cold war. it is the first time he has been willing to admit that the cold war is over. and then we come to the final point which i will make today which is what the world order came to mean. in many ways, this is a phrase that has been deemed by historians as being somewhat hollow, that there was nothing the within bush's new world order. i think t
, and it happened to europe, you have folks coming from countries where there's depression, failed instigates, and the rest of it, pouring north into europe, pouring north into the united states of america, and what i fear is going to happen in this country is the bulkization of the american nation. you know, we were one nation, one people around 1960, and now we had tremendous numbers of folks coming legally in immigration and illegally, tens of millions, and quite frankly, the assimilation is not going on. you know, we celebrate our diversity, but we're going to have to understand as americans, you got to have national unity. i don't see that anywhere now. i think that's one of the problems you're going to have if you do not control the border. >> so where are we headed with this situation right now? do you think the fact that even a number of democrats are coming out and saying -- >> i they are. >> making a mistake not doing something about this? not going down there? not treating this as a serious problem? >> look, this is just like george w. bush and katrina, mr. president, go to the bor
in europe, the british, the french, the germans, the americans, are going to be meeting to talk about coming up with a truce proposal. on monday, the arab league is supposed to be meeting for the same reason. so this here, the call by the u.n. security council of course is the biggest call that could be made. however, the israeli prime minister netanyahu has already said that israel will not stop firing -- fighting rockets on gaza until the rockets stop coming from gaza. there have been about 50 rockets from gaza fired at israeli targets. today, israel's continued its air raid attacks against gaza. at least five people killed in gaza. by the way, in addition to those five, two nephews of the former palestinian prime minister, they were killed on their way back from the mosque. so this is a very personal tragedy for a very many people in gaza. israel of course has been spared the worst of it because of the amazing success of its anti-rocket system, the iron dome. but the fear is that eventually a rocket from the palestinians, from hamas, will get through to an israeli town, cause significant
